Corey Wade (Pronoun indifferent)
Public Speaker, Queer Inclusive
Cory Wade (Pronoun Indifferent) is a public speaker, a queer inclusive sex-educator, and a prominent voice within the LGBTQ+ community. Cory’s activism started after he appeared on television as the first openly gay male ever to compete on America's Next Top Model. Cory has since used the social platform garnered through their reality TV stint to help facilitate conversations around queer inclusion and LGBTQPIA2S+ equality across America through “The College Agency”. Cory has toured the US to speak at multiple colleges & universities on effective allyship, inclusion, equality, practical empathy and human understanding. He also gives classroom setting vocab workshops on emerging vocabulary in the LGBTQPIA+ vernacular to encourage articulate communication around queer subject matter. Cory also taught queer inclusive sex-education with a non-for profit called S.T.A.R. for 3 years in which they talked to kids in grades 5 through 7 about things like puberty, safe sex, sexuality, gender, identity and all other realms of self discovery in adolescent development.
